Washington State is home to breathtaking mountains, trend-setting Seattle, and the country’s second largest wine industry. Join Kelly Kary of Olive Oil Outpost and Onward Travel for a wine-drenched week in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Spend three nights in Seattle, then journey east over the Cascades to explore several of Washington’s 14 AVAs (designated wine grape-growing regions).
Seattle is perched on Puget Sound, surrounded by water, mountains, and forested parkland. We’ll spend a day exploring the city plus a day north of town at the wineries. Seattle is known for its excellent cuisine and we’ll dive right in, noshing at Pike Place Market and dining out in the city. Eastern Washington is an agriculture hotspot and we’ll taste wine in the Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla AVAs. The apple orchards will be bustling and the grapes will be heavy on the vines.
This adventure is an excellent opportunity to learn about Washington’s wine industry firsthand. Local experts and winemakers will share their knowledge about the growing and thriving world of Washington wine. But this tour isn’t just about wine and food… we’ll also enjoy art, architecture, culture, nature, and charming towns for a full, fun week in the Pacific Northwest.
